THE FULLNESS OF GOD

THE INTRODUCTION

Paul prayed, "That he (God) would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is breadth, and length, and depth, and heights; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, and ye might be filled with all the fullness of God" (Ephesians 3:16-19). Now, our lives are precious because we possess the fullness of God in matters of our own creation of life because God was made to be our Creator. Therefore, we should learn more about the fullness of God in being our Creator because we are made in the image and after the likeness of God in mattes of our own creation of life. Remember: All Scriptures which are used in this article will be taken from the King James Version of the Bible.

THE REASONS FOR GOD'S FULLNESS

1. We possess the fullness of God in a created way because we are the offspring of God. The Bible says, "God hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation: That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of of us: For in him (God) we live, and move, and have our own being (of life); as certain also of your own poets have said, for we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man"s device" (Acts 17:26-29).

2. We in being New Testament Christians possess the fullness of God in matters of our own creation and redemption of life because we are new creatures in Christ. Paul said, "To wit (don't you know), that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the world of reconciliation. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed alway; behold, all things are become new" (2 Corinthians 5:17,19).

THE REQUIREMENTS OF GOD'S FULLNESS

1. If we want to possess the Fullness of God, we must seek the Lord our God. Isaiah said, "Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near" (Isaiah 55:6).

2. If we desire to possess the Fullness of God, we should seek the Kingdom of God. Our Lord said, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33).

3. If we wish to possess the Fullness of God, we need to seek those things which are above. Paul said, "If ye then be risen with Christ (by the act of baptism), seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead (to the old of sin which you once lived), and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory" (Colossians 3:1-4).

THE BLESSING OF GOD'S FULLNESS

1. In heaven, we in being New Testament Christians will possess the fullness of God because we will become a partaker of the Divine Nature of God. Peter said, "Whereby are given unto us many exceeding great and precious promises; that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust". (2 Peter 1:4).

2. In heaven, we in being new creatures in Christ will possess the fullness of God because we will become a partaker of the Spiritual Nature of God. Paul said, "Then cometh the end, (the end of this world), when he (Christ) shall have delivered up the kingdom (the Church) to God, even the Father; when he (Christ) shall have put down all rule, and all authority and power (of Satan). And when all things shall be subdued unto him then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him (God) that put all things under him (Christ), that God, i. e. the Spiritual Nature of God may be all, i. e. to each Person who has been redeemed in all", i. e. of each Person that has been redeemed (1 Corinthians 15:24,28).

THE CONCLUSION

THIS IS THE GREATNESS OF OUR OWN CREATION AND REDEMPTION OF LIFE

Our Lord said, "Ye do err not knowing the Scriptures nor the Power of God" (Matthew 22:29).

1. We in being New Testament Christians will become equal with those three Equal Persons who are called the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit in being our Creator, and who are made to be called the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in being our Redeemer. This is true because in our Heavenly Home we will equally possess Their Own Spiritual Personage of life so that we will become Spiritual Persons who possess a Spiritual body, and an Eternal Soul, and Spirit in matters of our own individual nature of life. The Bible says, "And as we have borne the image of the earthy i. e. the earthy man who possesses a physical body, and an Eternal Soul, and Spirit. we shall also bear the image of the heavenly", i. e. the Spiritual Person who possesses a Spiritual Body, and an Eternal Soul, and Spirit (1 Corinthians 15:49).

2. We in being New Testament Christians will become equal with those three Equal Persons who are called the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit in being our Creator, and who are made to be called the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in being our Redeemer. This is true because in our Heavenly Home we will equally possess Their Own Divine Powers of life so that we will become greater in power, rule, and authority than our Adversary, who is Satan, in reference to our own individual being of life. The Bible says, "If we suffer, we shall also reign (rule) with him (the Lord our God). If we deny him, he also will deny us" (2 Timothy 2:12). "He that overcometh (the forces of evil), and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations, And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shiver; even as I received of my Father" (Revelation 2:26-27). "And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light, and they (the Redeemed) shall reign (rule) for ever and ever", i. e, over the powers of Satan (Revelation 22:6).

3. We in being New Testament Christians will become equal with those three Equal Persons who are called the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit in being our Creator, and who are made to be called the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in being our Redeemer. This is true because in our Heavenly Home we will equally possess Their Own Divine Nature of life so that we will become Divine Persons in matters of our own individual nature of life. The Bible says, "God has given unto us many exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust" (2 Peter 1:4). Our Lord said concerning the equality of our own being of life, "Ye are gods" i. e. equal gods - not ranked gods (John 10:34-35).

4. We in being New Testament Christians will become equal with those three Equal Persons who are called the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit in being our Creator, and who are made to be called the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in being our Redeemer. This is true because in our Heavenly Home we will equally possess Their Own Divine Attributes of life so that it will be impossible for us to ever sin in reference to our own individual being of life. Our Lord said, "He that overcometh (the forces of evil), the same shall be clothed in white raiment (having his Divine Attributes Perfected) and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels" (Revelation 3:5).

5. We in being New Testament Christians will become
equal with those three Equal Persons who are called the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit in being our Creator, and who are made to be called the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in being our Redeemer. This is true because in our Heavenly Home we will equally possess Their Own Immortality of life so that we will become Immortal Persons, i. e. Deathless Persons in matters of our own individual nature of life. The Bible says, "Who (those three Immortal Persons who created and redeemed our own divine nature of life) only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see; to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen" (2 Timothy 6:16). "To them (the New Testament Christians) who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory, and honour, and immortality, eternal life" (Romans 2:7).

Our Lord said, "Ye shall know the truth, and THE TRUTH shall make you FREE", i. e. of sin (John 8:32).
